We are very happy to welcome six new children who were accepted into Aziza’s Place family after they successfully passed through the requisite three-month probationary period.
In October 2017, we offered seven children from the communities we serve to join AP’s programs. Every child welcomed into Aziza’s Place is required to pass through a three-month probationary period. During this period, the children are assessed on their behavior, how well they integrate with the other children already at AP, their willingness and their commitment to learning in our supplemental education classes and in the local public school, and the level of cooperation from their parents. Most importantly, we watch to see that the new children are happy and fit in well at Aziza’s Place.
From day one, the children exhibited very positive attributes and integrated very well with other AP children. They quickly learned the do’s and don’ts and were well behaved, all the while being happy and joyous. The transition for these new entrants was made easier because of their several siblings that were already at AP, which provided further support and comfort to the newbies.
Sadly, one out of the seven children who had settled-in easily had to leave AP because his parents decided to move back to their province. Given how seamlessly Rotha blended into the AP family, we decided to continue providing support, in the least for his educational expenses, through our ever-expanding Community Outreach efforts.
These are AP’s new enrollees (from left to right):
Welcome Liza (6 years old); Bona (9 years old); Sreytoch (6 years old); David (8 years old); Kakda (6 years old); and Reaksa (6 years old). Through our Community Outreach, we continue to support Rotha (8 years old).
